The Department of French, Hispanic and Italian Studies is looking to fund 1 PhD student in 17th- or 18th-Century French Studies through the Dorothy Dallas Scholarship, to start in September 2021 or January 2022.
The Dorothy Dallas Scholarship is available for graduate students in 17th- or 18th-Century French Literature and Culture. Our graduate program in French Studies delves into the languages, literatures, and cultures of Québec, France, and the Francophone world in an environment that celebrates intellectual curiosity and freedom of inquiry. The department’s hands-on approach to mentorship and vibrant community are frequently cited as contributing factors to the success of our graduate students.
Funding packages start at $22,000 per year for four years. A Teaching Assistantship is offered to all PhD students for five years. Moreover, there is a wide array of additional opportunities for financial aid from departmental, university, and external sources. The department is proud to support research development through its biennial Graduate Student Conference and annual Graduate Student Symposium that allow graduate students to share research with the academic community, network with their peers, and plan large-scale academic events. In addition, the Colloque en études francophones de la côte pacifique (CEFCP) brings together every year the graduate students from UBC and two other local institutions: Simon Fraser University and the University of Victoria.
Doctoral students must satisfactorily complete course work, doctoral examinations, a PhD proposal, and write and defend a dissertation.
